Pregnancy Update - 33 Weeks

Can you see that my belly isn't perfectly round? That extra little "bump" is my little boy's butt! He likes to stick it out when he cuddles up to sleep.

How Far Along: 33 Weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained nineteen pounds since being pregnant. My doctor said that's normal, and healthy, but that most of my recent weight gain is probably due to being puffy...

Gender: BOY! We are so excited!

Movement: I have a very active baby! He HATES being squished, so whenever I lean against something he "pushes" me away.
I can feel him "stretching" frequently now. He's really starting to run out of room!

Baby is Big as a: Pineapple (19 to 22 inches, 4.9 pounds)

Sleep: It's lovely when I can get it! Little boy usually wakes me up before I want to wake... He wants mama to go eat something! I don't think he's a big fan of my stomach growling...

What I miss: Being able to hug someone without my belly getting in the way. Also, I can't really touch my feet anymore...awkwardness.

Cravings: Still craving the red meat on the occasion and now salad. I also love anything spicy, this could be spicy as in my tongue is on fire, or a lot of cinnamon. I like cinnamon.
The biggest thing is that I just seem to be hungry all the time...

Food Aversions: Please don't eat hot-dogs around me.... yuck.

Symptoms: By the end of the day my lower back is sore.
Also, my feet and hands have started to swell if I eat too much salt. So I've been monitoring that. It's most uncomfortable. I have decided I'd rather have more stretch marks then have swelling... that's how much I hate it. It's gotten to the point that my joints hurt when I wake up because of how puffy my hands and feet are.

Can't wait to meet our baby boy in about seven weeks!
